Expert Corner:

When Artificial Intelligence Meets 3D Printing

by Jenny Chen, M.D.

While the general public is fascinated with both artificial intelligence and 3D printing as powerful new technological tools, and their potential future impact in healthcare, there has not been any known “killer applications” that utilize AI to improve existing 3D printing applications, in or out of healthcare/life sciences. The easy answer could be that both technologies are still relatively new, or that people who focus on AI applications are not necessarily interested in 3D printing, and vice versa. Or, maybe it’s because we simply do not have enough solutions to problems at hand.
